nation's hottest spot, needles, california, topped out at 112 degrees. a massive dome of moist air has held the heat in check. earlier this week, warm air from the gulf moved across the south and midwest pushing the jet stream and cooler air north. this weekend, the dome will cover most of the east coast, pushing the jet stream even further north. by early next week, that cooler air will push south bringing some relief from high temperatures, as well as some welcome rain. that is welcome news for busy emergency room doctors. >> in this heat, we're getting sicker patients as well. so not only are there more patients, but they are actually sicker. >> reporter: in chicago the temperature reached 99 grus, emergency room admissions up 20% and dangerous smog was part of the problem, trapped in stag napt humidity. in michigan, air-conditioners on overdrive overwhelmed utility companies leaving thousands without power. utilities in parts of iowa, minnesota, and wisconsin set

and they do this in the absence of any weather breeze, if you can believe it or not. the expected high today is 95. the heat index, 98. officials here say no matter what, these horses will run. opening day at america's oldest sporting r ining venue is a sum ritual. they are monitoring conditions and expect the races to go on as planned despite a predicted heat index of 100. races have been postponed only once before due to hot weather, during the summer of 2006. all along the east coast, people trying to enjoy the dog days of summer are feeling the heat. out in outdoor rock concert in new jersey, even preventive measures couldn't keep 100 people being treated for symptoms of heat exhaustion. at least one person was taken to the hospital.

7:08 am
a good day! >> reporter: absolutely on a o good day, that's right. i tell you this has been tough so far this spring for us. we have barely seen 70 degrees here in the last three days. let's take a look at some numbers to compare the two coasts for you. yesterday in seattle, 70 degrees. wednesday, 74. july 19th, tuesday, 70. compare that to new york, 97 yesterday. 89 wednesday. and 93 on tuesday. quite a difference. >> we are just about one month into summer and you've had just about one hour of 80-degree temperatures out in seattle. what are the people saying? seattle area? are they enough already? let's have summer? >> reporter: you know, chris, they absolutely do complain. we have had a really tough summer so far, seeing three days where we have seen 80 plus degrees and the reason you get that hour is because we don't see that temperature until the end of the day when the sun is ready to go down. so we have seen lots of people
7:09 am
here bundling up at pike place market in seattle with the umbrellas out. people are complaining. but i will tell you they do keep it in perspective and many, many people i talk to realize, comparing it to the rest of the nation, we are okay and we will take this. it is good sleeping weather, i will say that. >> that is for sure. you cannot put a price on low humidity, that's for sure. michelle newman in seattle for us, thank you. we hope it warms up for the folks in seattle so they can enjoy a little bit of summer before it's gone. here is rebecca. the other hot topic is de jure politics. they are working on a plan to cut spending and raise the federal debt limit and prevent a possible default. on thursday, talk a deal was done but all that did was make people angry. cbs news congressional correspondent nancy cordes has the latest from capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when news of that potential deal leaked out, it threw democrats here on capitol hill into an uproar. they said it was all spending
7:10 am
cuts, most tax increases, at least not for the foreseeable future. within minutes of reports surfacing that the two sides were nearing a deal, the speaker's office and the white house were furiously denying it. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. >> reporter: anyone reporting a $3 trillion deal without revenues is incorrect tweeted a top white house aide for good measure. there is no deal and no progress to report added an aide to speaker boehner. still, congressional democrats say they are being told that talks now center around a package of cuts to domestic spending and entitlement programs worth more than $3 trillion. the increased tax revenues democrats have been demanding would be put off a year or more to give congress time to tack tackle comprehensive tax reform. they gave jack an earful in the capitol hill thursday afternoon prompting the president to call democratic leaders to a
7:11 am
last-minute meeting at the white house. in the meantime, officials from the financial rating agency standard & poors were delivering their own warning to dozens of house republicans about what could happen if congress doesn't compromise. >> one of the other messages they had for us that was unmistakable was that if we kick the can down the road, it's a bad outcome for u.s. treasuries. >> reporter: congressional aids tell cbs news the deal in the works would require lawmakers to overhaul the tax code by 2012 and closing corporate loopholes and reducing personal tax deductions in exchange for lower income tax rates and the corporate tax rate. if congress could not meet that deadline, the bush tax cuts could be allowed to expire for families making more than $250,000 a year. but democrats do not see that as a fair trade. they say the bush tax cuts were set to expire at the end of 2012 anyway. and that is why the white house is insisting that all of these details that are going around
7:12 am
are inaccurate and that the two sides actually aren't very close to a deal at all. so no one up here seems to know exactly what is going on and that seems to be a pretty typical thing these days. >> i was going to say the same thing. nancy cordes on capitol hill, we appreciate your reporting. thanks. this morning, job hunters are under rising stress. the labor department says first time applications for unemployment benefits rose last week to 418,000 and 15 straight weeks more than 400,000 americans have filed new unemployment claims. a sign the economy is faltering and it is not a surprise because massive layoffs and major corporations have continued throughout the recovery. 26-year-old daniel werth has been job hunting the last month after laid off from his technology analyst position at morgan stanley. >> i don't get a lot of call-backs. sometimes, i get call-backs and they are looking for people with specific computer skills and
7:13 am
sometimes companies don't want to train. >> reporter: but werth is hardly alone. across the country, major corporations are dramatically slashing their work forces in an evident to cut costs and do more with less. >> the economy is growing slowly and many companies can meet demand by raising productivity and still lay off workers. >> reporter: this week, cisco announced it is laying off 6,500 employees and goldman sachs cut more than a thousand jobs and defense contractor lockheed is offering -- >> it seems like for every job out there, 20 people looking for it. so it's been difficult. >> reporter: in may, 1.78 million workers were laid off. the highest level since august of last year. and analysts are forecasting disappointing growth through the next two quarters. >> firms with growing productivity is in the technology sector, the
7:14 am
telecommunications sector and even in finance have no incentive to hire. the next three years we need to create 13 million jobs to bring unemployment down to 6%. >> reporter: little consolation for daniel werth who, like so many others, is struggling to stay afloat until the economy recovers. >> i'm going to have to look really hard. you know? it is discouraging but i try to, you know, look at the glass half full. >> just to give you a sense where companies are spending their money in the last two years. spending on new hires is up just 4% whereas spendsing on new technology is up 25% so they are being more productivity with less money. >> some people have to stay positive like that man we just saw. >> absolutely. >> betty nguyen is at the news desk. jeff glor is still in london. check in with him in a bit. >> staying positive over here, guys. the phone-hacking scandal in britain, british lawmaker wants police to investigate whether james murdoch, son of rupert murdoch, lied to parliament. jeff glor is in london with more on this. good morning, jeff.
7:15 am
>> reporter: good morning, betty. the murdoch family line has long been up until recently they believe the hacking was largely the work of a single rogue reporter. at issue here is an e-mail that james murdoch may or may not have seen, at least three years ago, seems to indicate it was a much bigger and much more widespread problem and here is what james murdoch said to parliament on tuesday. >> are you made aware of the -- the transcript of the -- message? >> no, i was not aware of that at the time. >> reporter: that is is not so according to two former news corp. employees. in a written statement, they say just by way of clarification, we would like to point out that james murdoch's recollection of what he was told was mistaken. james murdoch then issued a statement saying he stands by his testimony on tuesday. betty? >> very interesting. jeff glor in london for us, thank you.
7:16 am
contract talks to end the 132-day nfl lockout have yielded half a deal yesterday. the owners overwhelmly approved 10-year contract to end the impasse, but last night, the players union took a pass refusing to vote for now. the players say they want to to see the proposal's fine print first. one person was killed and at least 20 injured early this morning in a fiery tour bus crash in western new york state. the bus collided with a tractor-trailer. both vehicles caught fire. the truckdriver was killed. police say a passing soldier saved lives by pulling victims from the wreckage. 16 minutes past the hour. let's go back to marysol castro and saratoga springs, new york, is it hot enough out there for you?

now to latest setback for john edwards as he fights charges of campaign finance fraud.
7:33 am
cbs news chief political kort jane crawford is in washington for us. >> reporter: you know how they say when it rains, it pours? for john edwards, it's like a monsoon. facing federal charges, john edwards took hit hit ordered to repay more than $2 million in federal campaign money. the federal elections commission decided edwards presidential campaign got 3 million more than it should in federal matching campaign so the campaign has to pay it back. edwards' lawyers say his campaign doesn't owe the money which became an issue during a routine audit. every presidential candidate who gets federal matching money is reviewed and the commission's order is completely unrelated to edwards criminal charges. still, it's a blow and comes as edwards lawyers prepare for an october trial on whether the former democratic senator and vice presidential nominee
7:34 am
violated federal campaign laws when he ran for president in 2008. a federal grand jury indicted edwards after a two-year investigation for accepting nearly a million dollars in illegal contributions and using the money to hide his pregnant mistress rielle hunter. >> i did not break the law and i never, ever thought i was breaking the law. >> reporter: from the beginning, edwards is a said he was not guilty. >> two races down. >> reporter: prosecutors are focused on money donated to edwards by two appellaty supporters, dallas attorney fred barren who died in 2008, and ha heir res. this he say by spending the money to keep his mistress a secret, edwards broke the law. edwards lawyers can and will appeal this fine but when you're looking at jail time in the separate criminal case this
7:35 am
money that they say he owes is the least of his problems. >> he has a number of issues to deal with. let's say he has to pay the money. does this come out of his own account or write a check for 2.3 million? >> reporter: no, the presidential campaign still has some money left over. this fine, if he has to pay it, his lawyers will appeal, will come out of that account. that money is dwindling fast. he has a lot of other expenses too. >> let's switch gears and talk about the election. jon huntsman whose campaign literally has barely gotten off the ground and now making news today for the wrong reasons. one of his senior advisers is stepping down. what does it say for the huntsman campaign? >> reporter: that's right. jon huntsman's campaign manager susie wiles announced she is is leaving the campaign after a few months. huntman's guru john weaver said the campaign is moving in a more aggressive suggestion suggesting that susie wiles wasn't the one to take it on.
7:36 am
huntsman isn't picking up any traction in the polls. his advisers say it's early and they are not concerned. his top people still are there. they are still on board. the question for huntsman, though, is whether that campaign can bring the voters back on board. >> all right. cbs' jan crawford, thank you. good to talk to you. >> you, too. coming up on "the early show," going out of business sale begins today at borders book stores. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more americans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of new cell sites... for greater access to all the things you want, whenever you want them.

8:01 am
released a thu batch new batch and memos confirm everything from his paranoia to intense dislike of the press. bill plante has the fascinating details. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well the latest release of material from the library shows president nixon sweating or fretting over all kinds of small details, everything from soup to nuts and of course, about his enemies as well. and it shows his staff trying to save him as the watergate scandal began to overwhelm them. it's no secret richard nixon was obsessed with his enemies and it started long before watergate. this is one of a series of memos he dictated to chief of staff in early 1970. >> more i think of it, setting up the special group for the purpose not of cheering but solely of attacking and defending, is of the highest priority. >> reporter: in other memos, the same day, nixon grouses that the
8:02 am
new white house press room is too overdone. >> i believe from walking through the facilities that we've gone overboard in term of the elaborate individual cubicals and other areas that have been set up. >> reporter: and he orders a meeting to stop leaks to the press. >> the main purpose of this meeting will not be to get the point across through kissinger. >> reporter: after the watergate break-in in 1972, nixon assistant was looking for dirt on dnc chairman larry o'brien and wanted o'brien's tax return and complained to johnny walters it was taking too long. >> in all candor, i'm very impatient with the way the irs is handling it this far. >> i'm sorry you feel that way. let me tell you, i'm busting my back. >> great. >> to do everything to protect the president. >> no, no, wait a minute. >> you're playing with fire. >> reporter: there's all kinds of fascinating stuff in here.

a memo from ben stein, a speech writing, suggesting they try to help the president's popularity by getting a country song written or john wayne give a speech. a message from gergen saying they got a call from bob woodward and he had the goods on the coverup and later another memo saying that the white house council is telling the white house council the story might never run because, quote, it is not well-sourced at this point. rebecca? >> wow. bill plante at the white house. thank you. joining us now, bob woodward, subject of the note, and for the record, his sources stood the test of time and coverage of the watergate scandal. how much does all of this surprise you? >> it's interesting because this is 38 years ago, carl bernstein and i were doing this reporting for the "post" talking to people, getting lots of detail about the coverup, about illegal campaign money, dirty tricks, and it was an era when you could
8:04 am
go to the white house and talk to dave gergen for an hour and a half and spell out what we had and say, what can you give me guidance on, what's your response? and there was no rush to print. we eventually printed all of these stories, but sometimes it would take weeks. >> you bring up an interesting point about the times and how much times have changed in terms of reporting and privacy. do you think presidents now have it easier or harder in this youtube/facebook world. >> everything is driven by the impatience and speed, and give me a sound bite and, of course, in doing this story about nixon it wasn't about sound bites, it was about real reporting and getting detail and so forth. you know, i think in the sense it's easier for presidents. i think obama can control the message. they weren't going to stop us in
8:05 am
the nixon era from printing story, in the obama administration they won't stop the press, either, about because the press has to go in there every day, sometimes three, four times a day and say we need assistance, we need guidance the obama administration is able to control the message and get their hands around the throats of reporters who are dependent on that feed. >> you're saying we won't give you access but the administration can say we won't give you access to all of this unless you play by our rules? >> exactly right. you know, in a sense they have more message control now than ever. >> does all of this advise you -- rather, change your view of the nixon administration? >> no, it just confirms it. but what was interesting is, to go in there for an hour and a half, lay out the details, have one of the president's aides write a memo to the president saying, this is, of course, this
8:06 am
is what's coming and, of course, it took another 18 months before nixon resigned, but it was, quite frankly, an honest effort to get their point of view. this was uncharted territory for us. the idea that the president might be a criminal, running a criminal conspiracy, massive effort to sabotage and spy on the democrats, you know, that had not happened before. so we were going to take it very carefully and carl's off reporting, trying to figure out what john dean, who was nixon's couldn't whole eventually accused nixen in the coverup and that was eventually supported by nixons tapes and we're saying, what's the white house view on this? >> and now you're getting to see even more of it. >> that's right. and see it from another perspective and to see the
8:07 am
frenzy of that period in that meeting at the white house, it was two days before nixon fired his top aides, hal deman and dean resigned. >> bob woodward, great to see you re-creating this and relive it. appreciate it. here's betty nguyen at the newsdesk with a check of the other headlines. >> good morning. good morning to you. washington, there is no agreement on raising the federal debt limit. there are simultaneous negotiations pursuing both long and short-term solutions, though. democrats say the main negotiations are focused on a deal that would cut domestic spending by more than $3 trillion. at the same time. >> reporter: leaders continue work on a short-term deal to avoid a government default. there's a new twist in the british phone hacking scandal. a lawmaker wants police to investigate whether rupert murdoch's son, james, lied to parliament. in an answer to a question, james murdoch deny head knew
8:08 am
about an e-mail suggesting the hacking scandal involved more than one newspaper reporter. >> were you made aware of the female of the transcript? >> no, i was not aware of that at the time. >> but two former wendi murdoch empl -- murdoch employees say no. a fiery collision early today involved a tour bus and a tractor-trailer in western new york state. the truck driver was killed, and at least 20 people were injured. police say a soldier from a nearby army base pulled victims out of the burning us. in china, 41 people died when an overloaded double decker bus burst into flames today. the coach had a 35-passenger limit but was carrying 47 people. finally, it is a sweltering summer in much of the u.s., but just look at southern chile.
